Foster Care and Training Centre
LifeLine Youth Development Centre
We operate a Foster Care and Training Centre project in Chiang Rai City, that saves teenage girls from the vulnerability of falling through the cracks, at best, being married off into a life of hardship and extreme poverty or much worse, being sexually exploited. How we help: We provide foster care and education programs for teenage girls, who do not have the resources to continue their education. Chiang Rai city offers many continuing education options, that are not available in rural northern villages. The girls we care for are either orphaned, abandoned or from extremely remote, impoverished villages that lack any resources to provide an education or opportunity for them. Unlike in North America, all Foster Care Programs are run solely by charitable organizations and funds are raised through the generosity of donors. We provide full foster care programs and care and education sponsorships for girls in these situations. Two of the girls in our program, not so long ago thought they were destined to save themselves by marrying themselves off to survive, and now they dare to dream of graduating from college, owning businesses and travelling abroad.

Christian Outreach Centre/Haven FoundationThailand
Our strategic membership in COC/Haven Foundation is the only avenue for independent Foreign Non-profit societies like ours, that are conducting charitable activities, to operate legally in Thailand. How this helps: Without the umbrella of a Thai foundation, our projects and activities would be considered illegal by the Thai government. COC/Haven Foundation provides expert legal advice and member services support to organizations operating projects in Thailand, they sponsor and are legal guarantors to the Thai government for our Work permits and Visas.Through our membership, we have access to COC/Haven Foundation’s 22 years of experience dealing with Thai Culture and Government regulations and restrictions.
Here is M5M’s mission and vision in a nutshell: Our mission is to combat the effects of global malnutrition by providing food sourced supplements to children in need. Our vision is to see over five million children across the world embrace a greater quality of life, thriving, nourished and full of hope.
We have been approved by M5M foundation to receive a donation of Nutritional Supplements. We have witnessed first hand the lack of nutritional value in meals provided by many Children’s homes and schools, most meals consist of rice and or noodles, there are little to no green vegetables, fruit or proteins in their diets. How this helps: We believe we will see marked improvements in the health, energy levels and ability to concentrate, in the children who receive the supplements. We will be able to improve nutrition for hundreds of Children thanks to M5M’s program to combat malnutrition. Stay tuned to our social media sites for updates.
Education and Living Conditions
Pabongtaoganjan School is a rural boarding School that houses children from remote Akha and Lahu Hill Tribe Villages, many who would otherwise not have access to education. How we help: ESL and Math programs, English Camps, provide annual education scholarships. Projects we have completed: recovered the tables in the school cafeteria, provided care packages for over a hundred students, Christmas parties, Christmas gifts, gifts to the school sports program, renovated outdoor bathroom facilities, constructed over a hundred new clothing wardrobes for the dormitories. The children here will also receive the nutritional supplement sponsored by M5M.
Parmeingmaeprig School is a small school high in the mountain region of Mae Phrik, Thailand, this school supports primary age children from three very small, remote villages that only got electricity in May 2017. How we help: providing hygiene products, food, small gifts, and English Camps. During raining season it is difficult to get up the mountain to this village school, so we plan our visits around the local weather. Parmiengmaeprig school’s lunch program will also be recipients of the M5M nutritional supplement. Stay tuned to our social media sites for updates.
